Richmond’s Linden Row Inn (www.lindenrowinn.com) is located on the site of the “Enchanted Garden” where a teenaged Poe once courted his first fiancée Elmira Royster. One of Poe’s boyhood homes stood directly across the street from this historic 1840s inn.
As Richmond celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allan Poe, the Poe Museum, St John’s Church, Segway of Richmond, and the historic Linden Row Inn invite you to experience history through the eyes of Edgar Allan Poe.
